http://my.barackobama.com/page/speakout has various calls for writing letters on several topics. Many letters on this site appear verbatim in various publications. Examples:
The google result gives several links with sentences in them that are identical to the astroturf website of Teleprompter Jesus. e.g.: "In most states, companies are permitted to charge a 22-year-old woman 1.5 times the premium of a 22-year-old man."

Sorry, there is no proper headline and no article, just a direct reference to zero's website. Considering the importance of the issue, I started a separate thread. I hope it is okay.
For the acronym impaired, what is OFA?
Obama/Organizing for America
“Organizing for America” is the Obama campaign.
Thanks raider... I should turn in my FReeper merit badge for not figuring that one.
Organizing For America!!!!!
I just knew someone here would bust em. TX.
Organizing for America, Obama’s socialist revolution foot soldiers.
Slim, clueless and alone again...
The guy in New Mexico is always the last to know.
You guys getting this?
You might want to pass this info on to the the Cleveland Plain Dealer’s reporter Sabrina Eaton.
There are ways to spam this site creatively, no?
I don’t see the Ellie Light astrotruf there. Not saying it isn’t there, but I haven’t found a letter that has that “magic wand” language in it.
So funny! That means nobody is reading that website since newspaper staffs did not recognize the letters.
What if you have a prez & nobody pays any attention to him.
OMG. If you google the first sentence of each suggested LTTE topic on the website there are pages of returns of the same letter in different newspapers/media sources around the country.
